* The characters of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' tend to fit this: [[DishingOutDirt Venus adepts]] have brown hair, [[PlayingWithFire Mars adepts]] that aren't from the [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation Mars clan in Prox]], especially [[GoldenSunDarkDawn Tyrell]], have bright red hair, and [[MakingASplash Mercury adepts]] have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]]. Three of the five or so visible Jupiter adepts, which combine both ShockAndAwe and BlowYouAway, have the blonde or white hair associated with those motifs, but purple is more generally used as an indicator of Jupiter affinity. In addition, when Light Psynergy comes into existence at the end of Dark Dawn, it is shown to be strongly affiliated with gold. However, it seems to be averted with the [[CastingAShadow Umbra clan]]; neither of the two representatives whose hair is visible have black or purple hair.

* [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] - Usually [[FieryRedhead red hair]], although sometimes it will be more orange. Sometimes taken to the [[FlamingHair logical extreme]]. Hair will often be short and spiky.
* [[DishingOutDirt Earth]] - Brown or green hair. More rarely, orange or yellow. Usually short hair on males, females may have longer hair. Tends to be WildHair or dreadlocks.
* [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]] - Yellow or white. Hair will often be spiky, as though hit by an electric current.
* [[MakingASplash Water]] - [[WaterIsBlue Usually a bright blue]], especially if ice is also present as light blue. Hair is usually straight and of mid length and flowing, but it can also be wavy.
** [[AnIcePerson Ice]] - Light blue or white, and of a similar style to water, though probably less flowing.
* [[BlowYouAway Air]] - White or gray. Often wavy with lots of volume. It may defy gravity. Can be [[WindIsGreen green]] in some cases.
* [[LightEmUp Light/Holy]] - White or yellow, or [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold outright gold]]. Tends towards MysticalWhiteHair when white. May overlap with GoldAndWhiteAreDivine.
* [[CastingAShadow Dark]] - Nearly always black, occasionally more purple.
* [[GreenThumb Nature/Wood/Plant]] - Green. Often messy, and decorated with leaves or [[FlowerInHerHair flowers]].
* [[HeartBeatDown Love]] - [[RoseHairedSweetie Pink]] or gold. Probably because the first is feminine, and the second is often considered [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold pure and innocent]]. Expect HairDecorations. Rarely, if ever, found on a male character.

Hair color is an easy visual shorthand for getting information about a character to the audience. Most often, hair color will tell you something about the character's personality, but sometimes, its meaning is far more obvious: this character has an {{Elemental Power|s}} and the [[ColorCodedElements hair color to match the element]]. Quite often, their personality will also be tied to their element and thus their hair color.
